Both times I've bought books from this place, they've not only been anywhere near the "sensible economic option" they claim on their site, the amount they offer when selling the books back is ridiculous. I calculated it out and found that I got back 7% of what I originally paid. Even The University Book Store gives back more than that. I'll be looking elsewhere the next time I need textbooks for specific classes and the professors put the book list only there.

This bookstore is a little bit small. Most but not all the textbooks can be found in this store. The price of the books is relatively cheaper than the ones in University Bookstore.

Interesting location on state street. They carry a good selection of new and used textbooks-unfortunately they are not the best priced and some books can only be found there or online which leaves no options when on a tight schedule and in need of a textbook.

This store has both new and used books. All textbooks are available, and you also get other books. You can sell your textbooks and get a reasonably good price for books being taught in the current semesters.

Just by the title of the bookstore you'd think you've found something special. You've found something top secret right? They must have bargain deals, right? WRONG! I thought this was the place to go to get a good deal on your textbooks because the University Bookstore was expensive. Typically, I have found that the prices are even higher here. The store is small, cramped, and unorganized. The employees make me feel uncomfortable. My first choice is to buy online and second is the University Bookstore.

PROS: interesting name
CONS: price

Great pace to find used text books. Most of the current text books are generally available and turns out cheaper than new edition. However, do not try to sell books here as they offer very low price.

I'm always one for stopping one company from monopolizing the whole market in an area--that's why I love the Underground Book Exchange so much. Literally located underground, this bookstore stocks textbooks for most classes held at the UW. Though they may not have as much of a selection as the University Bookstore, their prices are sometimes cheaper, and when they give you money back for a book you sell back, they always round up to the nearest dollar...good deal.
